Please don't flag this package out-of-date just because the version number displayed on AUR seems old. This is normal for VCS packages. As long as building the package works without problems, it isn't necessary to update the PKGBUILD here. makepkg will automatically retrieve the latest version when you build the package locally.

Hi, the latest version of neovim now has a .desktop file and icon file to go with it.
To install these files appropriately, I used the following package() function:

package() {
cd "${pkgname}/build"
make DESTDIR="${pkgdir}" install
cd ..
install -Dm644 LICENSE "${pkgdir}/usr/share/licenses/${pkgname}/LICENSE"
install -Dm644 runtime/nvim.desktop "${pkgdir}/usr/share/applications/nvim.desktop"
install -Dm644 runtime/nvim.png "${pkgdir}/usr/share/pixmaps/nvim.png"

rthyberg: The build should use LuaJIT, which has bitop built in. Did you see [1]?


rthyberg commented on 2017-02-21 01:29

Missing dependency lua51-bitop
Also the cmake looks for the lua interpreter at /usr/bin/lua when it should be /usr/bin/lua5.1

Now it comes with a builtin .desktop file( Is there anything to change in this repo?

nishantvarma: Sorry, I don't understand your question. gperf is already a build-time dependency.

nishantvarma commented on 2016-12-18 17:32

gperf needs to be installed and it can be obtained from package server. How can this be updated?

rumpelsepp: This was intentional, and in line with how e.g. the Homebrew formula builds from VCS [1]. However, after discussing upstream, the formula will be changed to use RelWithDebInfo, and I did the same for this package.

This package generates a Development build. From :CheckHealth :

## Performance
- INFO: Build type: Dev
- WARNING: Non-optimized build-type. Nvim will be slower.
- Install a different Nvim package, or rebuild with `CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RelWithDebInfo`.

It's a -git package built from the latest development HEAD. Both common sense and a quick look at the PKGBUILD tell you it's not a release build.

Is it set to release build? Why am I getting .nvimlog in $HOME directory?
